The Norwich Record

Spring 2016

A series of math errors, rounding mistakes, and other miscues led the World Health Organization (WHO) to issue dangerous drinking water guidelines for inorganic toxic substances, including molybdenum, mercury, and uranium. Norwich environmental chemist Seth Frisbie and several colleagues caught the gaffs. In August 2015, they published their findings in the journal Environmental Health. Since then, the researchers have been working to improve the standards.
